Band name:
ACRYLICS

Date & location formed:
June 21st 2014, in the Wine Country’s dirtiest barn.

Reason for forming:
We all have the same humor, and a wide variety of taste in music. We musically don’t fit in anywhere, it was only right to start making noise, together, like the weirdos we are.

What are your lyrics about?
Our songs are about sick thoughts, urges, anger, depression, stress, anxiety, ADHD, and all the fucked up shit that we all ignore on a daily basis.

How would you describe your sound?
Hardcore punk, grunge, noise, experimental, psychedelic…. We’re freak punk.

What’s in the future for this band?
We released a demo six months ago. We just released our 2nd tape. Now were working on a single track. The next step is a split with the band OVVN. After the split we are trying to come out with our EP. We are being booked for shows all over California right now, local shows as well.

Wulfen Sister II

Band name:
WULFEN RAG

Date & location formed:
December 2013 in Highland Park, CA.

Reason for forming:
We were all volunteering for Razorcake. Guitarist/singer John heard Ian MacKaye say that people should stop asking for a Minor Threat reunion and start their own bands. So we did.

What are your lyrics about?
Los Angeles: mental illness, drought, killer cops, car accidents and cockroaches.

How would you describe your sound?
Eric from Steppe People said one of our songs sounded like Motörhead. There is a good chance that we peaked musically in that moment and should have called it quits right there.

What’s in the future for this band?
Just finished our first recordings and hope to put out a 7″ sometime around summer 2015. Also, chasing taco trucks and lots of H.P. house shows!

Día final

(Diá Final logo by Ali Ripper)

 

Band name:
DÍA FINAL

Date & location formed:
June 2014, Mexico City.

Reason for forming:
To deal with this fucking city and its fucking people while we share the ways of DIY hardcore punk with our friends and people all over the world.

What are your lyrics about?
(Crazy) fucked up daily life, fire, doomsday, our enemies, the days ahead, and D-beat/raw punk.

How would you describe your sound?
Very distorted D-beat/raw punk total worship with the old Mexican hardcore flavor.

What’s in the future for this band?
Put some records out and play with every awesome hardcore punk band we can in this city or another, maybe yours.
